    Manchester has been the focal point of much interest and speculation in recent weeks, involving national and international attention.  A few weeks ago we had the Soccerex Conference: Sepp Blatter and friends came to town to discuss football’s future, including the thorny issue of the selection of the next two World Cup countries.  This week the Labour Party arrived for its annual conference.  Both conventions were held at Manchester Central, which was previously the G-Mex Centre and prior to that, for those with long memories, Central Station.

    The result is not only unsightly, it leaves the building open to water ingress and damage.

    Plastic pipes are naturally prone to this kind of abuse and damage. We provide aluminium rainwater pipes which will not fracture in this way.
